Do you have expensive art in your home: Paintings, sculptures, glass works, textiles, ornamental jewelry, and other items?
If you have art, is it "fine art" - a one-of-a-kind work that may have some historic or artistic significance that required a specific fine skill to create, and is rare and unique?
Fine art differs from collectibles and jewelry, which your policy will typically cover up to a limit. For example, your policy may cover a loss of up to $2,500 for your art, collectibles and antiques.
However, if you're assuming that your homeowner's insurance will cover your fine art, you may be disappointed. Most standard homeowner's policies have a cap, per insurance category, on the amount of personal property coverage provided.
